I have a confession: I am a beauty hoarder. I collect beauty products then I do not throw them out when I know I should. And I know I’m not the only one. I know there are a few people out there who are nodding their heads in agreement. If you’re the kind of person who gets upset at the idea of throwing out an old liquid lipstick that you don’t remember when you bought it because there’s some in the tube, you’re in good company.
Hoarding products isn’t just a space issue, it’s a skin care issue if you’re still using all of those old beauty products. As pretty as all of those eyeshadows, lipsticks, and beauty tools may appear, they could actually be pots of germs and bacteria. Spoiler alert: Applying any germy product to your face is never a good thing.
I know that it is hard to throw things away. You spent your hard-earned dollars on those products so you want to make sure you get your full money’s worth, right? However, there comes a time when you need to stop thinking about the money you spent and toss old products. If you have these beauty products kicking around, you should probably stop using them now. Go out and buy some new versions and your skin will thank you.
